Celebrities are lucky for a lot of reasons, not least of which because they often get their hands on a bag before we ever can. Personally, I’ve always liked that brands give bags out early to famous friends–it makes it easy for me to see a bag being worn and gage how it translates from stock image to real life. Burberry has always had a huge celebrity following, and while the brand’s bags have taken a bit of a backseat on PurseBlog recently, I was introduced to the Burberry Patchwork Bag and quickly fell for it. This bag has been seen on countless celebs already, and now it’s readily available to purchase for you and I; because no two styles are the same (each bag is one-of-a-kind!), this bag stands apart as one of fall’s best.

The iconic trench coat and Novacheck print come to mind when most people think of Burberry. With that in mind, the Burberry Patchwork Bag is a collection of pieces inspired by the belt buckle from the trench coat so many shoppers love, and each of the individual bags has been separately designed and named. You can see from some of the images below (and check it out on Burberry, where they are available now) that the bags is available in a variety of colors, textures, fabrics and embellishments, which are combined to complete each design. On top of that, you’re able to personalize your bag by adding up to three initials as part of Burberry’s Runway Made to Order service, which, in this case, I would absolutely add. The initials are applied in gold foil lettering at the base of the shoulder strap.

I always like the Burberry check pattern but often yearn for something more from the brand when it comes to accessories, and this bag provides the variation I’m looking for. It has a really edgy vibe with the thick shoulder strap, and the bag can be worn as a shoulder bag with a shorter strap, crossbody with the strap fully extended or as a clutch with the strap removed. I like that a few of the versions do include a peek at the check pattern, which gives the designs that notably Burberry touch. Beyond that, there are also a ton of other combinations, including snakeskin, leather, suede, leopard-print calfskin and applied embellishments to make each bag stand out. Another interesting fact is that each bag has a unique name referencing British streets, towns and villages. So between the one-of-a-kind design, optional personalization and individual name, these bags are truly unique.

When I was sent info on these bags, I immediately thought the price would be so high for the one-of-a-kind pieces that they’d be out of almost everyone’s price ranges, but the price is very much in line with the rest of the brand’s offerings, and it’s one of the reasons I love this bag so much. The Patchwork Bags are available now via Burberry for $2,495.

It’s quite dreadful, but to each his own.

Oh wow. I love all of them. I think this may be the start of Burberry’s comeback.

That’s what I think too! I really love the two stock images I attached (with the white background) – but there seems to be a color/material combo for everyone!

I’m usually not a big snakeskin person, but they’ve done it really well here. I think slide 8 is my favorite.

I was in Burberry the other day and saw these in person. I didn’t like them because I felt there was WAY too much bag going on. Instead I went to Balenciaga and bought my first Mini City (thanks to PurseBlog’s coverage).

It seems like designers are trying to out do each other with the amount of patterns and embellishments this year. I am in sensory overload after looking at the fall bags and shoes. I am reluctant to buy any of these pieces because they don’t really seem like they are good investments. Kinda fun but they will be “out” in a flash.

Yeah, after all the minimalist bags, now pendulum is beginning to swing the other way.

And not in a good way. They all look like 1st year fashion school projects!

Never liked the patchwork look, it’s like they have used the leftover from other exotic pieces to put a new bag together

I like them as a clutch. I’m not crazy about the thick shoulder strap, that’s just dumb, but as a clutch, especially photo 6, I like.

These bags are reminiscent of Coach bags from about 10 years ago. Especially the big brass buckles.

It looks like someone said “luxury” and they threw absolutely everything expensive onto the bag. It reads gauche to me.

i find this to be tacky and boring – something that should come from coach, not burberry

Usually I wouldn’t be caught dead with patchwork anything, but these are tastefully. Not ungapatchka at all.
